    You can do it from either the command line or the GUI. For the command line either man date or man rdate. The GUI should be self explanatory. What version of Linux are you running?

    Look under the "System Settings" for "Date and Time."

    You probably need to use 'sudo' to use date or rdate from the command line to change the date and time. Type "man sudo" for an understanding on how sudo elevates your privileges on the system to enable system changes.
